Greater emphasis is now being placed by Caribbean countries as well as national, regional and international organizations on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). M&E is now recognized as a key element of evidence-based decision making at all levels of the health system and CHRC is pleased to be a part of this thrust as it continues to contribute to the sustainable development of the Caribbean.
Indeed, CHRC is the principal regional health institution charged with providing support to countries in the monitoring and evaluation of national programmes. A significant aspect of CHRC’s work is the promotion of M&E of projects and programmes. CHRC recognises the pressing need to develop the capacity for M&E throughout its 19 member countries. Targeted, structured training and technical support for the development of various aspects of the 12 components of the M&E system are seen as critical elements of CHRC’s work.
CHRC’s M&E work is facilitated through the engagement of funding partners such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
